Sunday Salon: New Mystery Series for 2016

Welcome to the Sunday Salon where bloggers share their reading each week. Visit The Sunday Post hosted by The Caffeinated Bookreviewer. Also visit Mailbox Monday, and It's Monday, What Are You Reading? hosted by Book Date.

Spring-like weather and rain lately, no white Christmas this year. We are getting spoiled till the end of the year, it seems.

Three new cozy series for the new year:

Daisies for Innocence by Bailey Cattrell, first in a new series, to be published January 5, 2016 by NAL

The first Enchanted Garden Mystery featuring custom perfume maker Elliana Allbright...
Ellie’s life has blossomed in Poppyville, California, since she opened Scents & Nonsense, a custom-made-perfume store. Her skills with aromas and botanical essences—some from her very own garden—seem almost…supernatural. Her perfumes can evoke emotions,  bring about change, or simply make people happy. But when she learns that her part-time assistant Josie is dating her ex, she finds Josie dead in the Enchanted Garden. Now the prime suspect in Josie’s murder, Ellie must search for the real culprit in Josie’s past. (goodreads)
One Foot in the Grove by Kelly Lane, an Olive Grove mystery, to be published January 5, 2016 by Berkley

First in a new mystery series about Eva Knox and her family’s Georgia olive plantation.
In the sweet Southern town of Abundance, Georgia, home of the Knox family’s olive farm,...A death on her family’s farm soon makes Eva the lead suspect in a murder case—and the sheriff investigating is none other than Eva’s old flame Buck.

It’s up to Eva and her sisters, Pep and Daphne, to figure out who could have possibly left a dead body in their olive grove.
To Helvetica and Back by Paige Shelton, to be released January 5, 2016 by Berkley
The New York Times bestselling author introduces readers to Star City, Utah, and a little shop called the Rescued Word...Star City is nestled in a ski resort town in a side street full of shops that specialize in earlier eras. In the Rescued Word, Chester Henry and his granddaughter Clare repair old typewriters and restore old books. Who ever thought their quaint store would hold the key to some modern-day trouble? (goodreads)

These all sound so fabulous! I'd love to spend winter days wrapped in these stories. I'm jealous i didn't think of them too they are so adorably clever.

These both look so good! I have been on a mystery kick this year, and I don't see it ending any time soon! The weather here has started to turn, but all we've gotten is rain, and I'm sure that's all we'll get. Spring weather indeed!

I always enjoy seeing the cozies.
Our weather has been spring-like as well but we have a winter storm coming in this afternoon (I'm in SE Wisconsin). A good day to stay home and read.

To Helvetica and Back is catching my eye because of the typewriter. :)

ENJOY all three cozies.

We have had nice weather, but it is getting chilly again.

Have a great last reading week of 2015.

Those all look good. Enjoy! Are warm weather went downhill today, which is sad. I was totally enjoying the warm temps.

I just love good weather on Christmas, but I don't think I'm with the norm. Green Christmases are the best for me. My daughter, however, wants to use her new sled. :)
